    I always take my time preciously, so I will think thoroughly until I come up with a suitable plan.Sorry to interrupt you, but could it be possible for you to add a "Working In Background" version of the Raining Question Marks cursor?
    That's already included, is this one:

    I don't see how using a photo editing program would make it much faster unless complex gradients and visual effects are included, there is some kind of layer support in RWCE but I haven't looked into it properly. I've finally figured out how to disable interpolation when moving selections (exact co-ordinates setting), but I still don't know if it's possible to disable it for resizing.
    I use the photo editor for the gradient and effects you mention. But also by making one large version once that gets resized into multiple layers at once by RWCE. If you go to tweak frame by frame, layer by layer by hand that's too much time consuming especially if your cursor has 3 or more layers and 20+ frames.

    There was one suggestion for the Riddler Premium XXL set but you completed it before I had the chance. The beam and precision select cursors could've been question marks themselves, beam with two of them, vertically flipped to mirror each other, and the cross with four of them, both vertically and horizontally flipped.
    Check that with @Cesare. Post it if you wish. Or maybe a preview first.
    I'm sure you can do that in RWCE but there are 24 frames and not many pixels. I find these kind of pixel-tweaks special since I don't do that in RWCE if too much animation is involved.

    Riddler Premium XXL


    @Hopachi

    Thank you so much for including the Working In Background cursor roles. Now, the Riddler Premium XXL cursor set is now 100% complete. I am very satisfied, and many thanks for that cursor.

    @i486

    I do not want the Precision Select and Text Select cursor roles to be modified. Your idea sounds good, but for this Riddler theme, I am happy with what Hopachi did with the style, layout colors and animations as they are. I do not want any more tweak done to this cursor set.

    You spoke about question marks with mirror effect on the Precision Select and Text Select cursors, well I have a set like that called Riddler on my RealWorld profile named RIDDLER. See the link below:

    Please do not forget to rate if you comment on my Riddler set from the link above.

    Thank you.

    I might be including an aero style pointer as an alternative in the EB sets, it looks better than the thinner, long tailed version and in some cases it will show the fill colour better. Possibly also alternative star spinners with several smaller stars fading in and out, and gear cursors if I can make a suitably pixelated version that doesn't look out of place.

    Or perhaps it'd be better to make an enhanced version of Hopachi's aero sets so all cursor states would have that modern look...

    On closer inspection it looks as if it's not worth it to adjust the whole Aero set since only a few cursors between those are strikingly different, such as the pointer, pen and link select. I think I will simply port those to the Binary sets, including all animated states.

    There are no needs to modify the arrow pointers. I prefer arrow pointers with a tail because that adds more character and realism to them. Please do not modify any of Hopachi's Aero sets because they are perfect as he designed them.

    If you want to make new cursor sets, create your own ones from scratch, rather than making clones of pre-existing cursor sets, which is unnecessary. There are no needs to any cursor repeats because that in unnecessary.

    Yesterday, I uploaded my Riddler Premium XXL cursor set that Hopachi made for me on the RealWorld website.

    Take a look at it in the new Chromium version of Microsoft Edge. It looks great fully animated on the RealWorld website.

    No-one's modifying Hopachi's cursor sets here, only he can do that. I'm adding cursors to a set that is based on his Binary cursors. That's a big difference. Anyway, I tweaked the Binary sets for my personal use but I wanted to share them here because Hopachi's been kind enough to share all of his.

    That's great to know that you are sharing the Binary cursor sets here. Hopachi has been very kind and helpful to all of us, including me with my requests.

    Yeah. I just using Black and White Binary Enhanced with my modified install.inf file.

    Well, i just modified Hopachi's install.inf on Green Black Binary not the cursors.

    The black and white Binary set is great. Are you going to release more Binary colors, or is it finished?

    Rainbow Ultimate Horizontal/Vertical XXL


    Rainbow Ultimate Horizontal XXL

    Hi Hopachi. I have another dazzling request for you about two fully animated rainbow cursor sets that I want you to create for me. Those two rainbow cursor sets are supposed to have an animation loop effect that is completely different from your previously made "Rainbow Deluxe" cursor set. I tried to make this on my own using GIMP but I find it much too difficult to make. That is the reason why I need your help and assistance for the last time.

    Since you are an expert at creating such complex animated cursors with super realistic animations, I need your help once again to create two rainbow cursor sets. The first rainbow cursor set needs to be named "Rainbow Ultimate Horizontal XXL". The second one needs to be named "Rainbow Ultimate Vertical XXL" respectively. Both cursor sets needs to be in extra large (XXL) size so that all the animations and frames can properly be seen to the naked eye, as well as making all the cursor roles have super smooth edges.

    For those two animated cursor sets, I want a continuous color animation loop with 20 rainbow colors. Having twenty rainbow animated colors with 20 frames would be good. If you think that more frames can be added for a smoother animation, then feel free to add more animation frames. The smoother the animation, the better it will be.

    I want the rainbow colors do display a wave effect of multiple colors in each of the animation frames that plays. Its kind of hard to explain this, that is the reason why I uploaded a sample cursor made by someone else on the RealWorld website. Take a good look at the animated cursor below:

    Rainbow ani/cur Cursors (rw-designer.com)

    As you can clearly see from the image above. the cursor animation is too fast. You will need to cut down the animation speed for all the cursor roles by half. Doing so will make sure that the wave effect of the animation and all the 20 colors can be seen properly with the naked eye. Also, the cursor above does not have enough rainbow colors, so you need to make sure that there are 20 colors in total. All the rainbow colors must be in order from dark red to hot red and back again. Below is the correct order of the rainbow color scheme that I want you to use for all the cursor roles:

    1. Dark red.
    2. Red.
    3. Orange red.
    4. Orange.
    5. Light orange.
    6. Gold.
    7. Yellow.
    8. Lime green.
    9. Green.
    10. Sea green (green-blue in appearance).
    11. Cyan.
    12. Sky blue.
    13. Blue.
    14. Blue Pink.
    15. Pink.
    16. Hot pink.
    17. Pink red.
    18. Purple.
    19. Red.
    20. Hot red.

    Please note that the color matrix below does not display dark red. Dark red must be there as the 1st color and must loop with hot red after the end sequence of the ordering of the colors in the rainbow effect. That means that the first color in the animation loop sequence is dark red and the last (20th) color is this animation loop sequence is hot red. Please note that there are 20 colors in this animation so think well, take you time to avoid getting colors muddled up in the wrong order. Some pinks and reds are similar so be careful.

    All the cursor roles must have the same animation effect for all the cursors. The animation effects for the first cursor set must play in a horizontal looping effect. That is like this:

    Custom Cursors-rainbow.png

    Both the "Rainbow Ultimate Horizontal XXL" and "Rainbow Ultimate Vertical XXL" cursor sets must use the highest possible resolution for best clarity. Both cursor sets must also have super smooth edges with a black outline border that has the same thickness as the Riddler Premium XXL you made before. Please note that black outlines with rainbow cursors looks best.

    Please add an Inverted and Universal mouse pointer cursor role, as well as Location Select and Person Select cursor roles. I want both cursor sets to have 24 cursors in total. Please also add a swinging mouse pointer cursor role that swings like a bell. The animation must be smooth and also needs to have all the same animation effects as with the rest of the cursors. For a smooth animation effect of the swinging mouse pointer, that pointer will need 20 frames for a smooth animation.

    Pendulum-Swinging Arrow Cursor (rw-designer.com)

    For the Busy and Working in Background cursor roles, I want the colors to spin in the same rotation effect as you did in the Rainbow Deluxe cursor set so that the animated colors makes sense with the rotary spinners effect.

    Rainbow Ultimate Vertical XXL

    For the second rainbow cursor set, all the colors must play back in a vertical manner from left to right as seen in the screenshot below:

    Custom Cursors-rainbow-2.png

    To make life much easier for you, Hopachi, please use the pre-existing template that you have used to create the first rainbow cursor set named "Rainbow Ultimate Horizontal XXL" cursor set. All you need to do here is to flip all the colors from the animated frames to vertical so that all the colors plays and loops back in a vertical manner from the top down direction.

    Please make this cursor set in 64x64 pixels. With that amount of pixels, it will be possible to make XXL cursors with smooth edges and 20 animation frames for each of the cursor roles.

    Please do not rush creating those two cursor sets. Take your time. When you first upload a finished cursor, upload a prototype so that I can judge how fast the animation plays and how the cursor looks. If I want any small adjustments and tweaks done, I will let you know.

    Good luck Hopachi and I hope you succeed creating this cursor set. Please note that this is my last cursor request for you to make.
